Last night I attempted to watch the new ABC show, "Men in Trees" starring Anne Heche. I made it through about 30 minutes before I couldn't take it any more. The show is a blatant rip-off of Northern Exposure, only without the strong cast, quality writing, and likeable, interesting characters. In other words, it totally sucks. I'm not sure what ABC exec thought Anne Heche had a tv viewer following, but this woman is less likable than Tom Cruise on a bad day. Does anyone at ABC remember how many people booed at the screen when she starred with Harrison Ford in Six Days and Seven Nights? How about the scathing reviews?

This show is amazingly bad, and I don't have any hope for improvement. My prediction is "Cancelled" before the month is out.

That's pretty pathetic when the kick off show is that bad. I watched a show called Teachers last spring for a short time because it came on after Scrubs. It was terrible. I think it lasted six weeks.

How are you doing with your iPod? is having a 1 million free download promotion where you can free downloads the finales of Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewife, and Lost.

Teachers was awful - I couldn't believe they thought the Scrubs fans would go for it . . . and I haven't yet tried out my Ipod . . . tomorrow maybe?
